I was enamoured with the fact that this antique movie set was a duplicate of history it self and even contained sets of different community types during that time.
I left with a very real wonder about the wild west, a sense of time that was a beauty to realize. I even caught myself talking with a drawl. The fire destroyed it, but my eye has kept it very real.
